This will be a huge step for new generations. We decided to offer these trainings so we can have students who adores math and enjoy learning math.”
Ertürk reported that students viewed math as an abstract concept, but Vedic, Montessori, Singapore Mathematics models made math more concrete and enjoyable. She said that math education was very significant in terms of training more productive and talented, free-thinker students.

“Training courses will take place at the University. 32 hour training courses will focus on three main education models. These education models will emphasize basic operations. Mathematical concepts and mechanisms will be taught. How math teaching takes place via using simple tools, and how math should not be a subject to be scared of will be discussed.”
